ERMA BOMBECK: AT WIT'S END Announced At Aurora Theatre!

Bringing biographical humor to the studio stage, Erma Bombeck: At Wit's End will leave Aurora Theatre audiences laughing from March 22 - April 14! The story, based on the real-life tale of Erma Bombeck, follows an Ohio woman turned self-made legendary humorist and provides a comic look into the woman who helped our nation learn that, as long as we remember to laugh, the crazy world is easier to handle.

"Across the country, people have loved Erma Bombeck: At Wit's End since it debuted in Washington D.C. in 2015," said Director Megan Rose-Houchins. "We're eager to bring this show to Atlanta area audiences and honored to have the talented, local Lane Carlock starring. It's bound to be a show that patrons will love and remember for a long time to come!"

This comedic one-woman show brings to life the unexpected humor found in the daily life of a mother, housewife and philosopher. "If life is a bowl of cherries, what am I doing in the pits?" Bombeck famously mused as she humorously gave voice to the frustrations of an entire generation of American women in her newspaper column "At Wit's End." Full of tongue-in-cheek relatable comedic observations, the biographical play reflects Bombeck's influence on American culture in a manner sure to leave audiences - both familiar and non-familiar with the character herself - rolling in the aisles.

Aurora Theatre's production of Erma Bombeck: At Wit's End features illustrious local actress Lane Carlock as Erma Bombeck. At the helm of this one-woman show is talented director Megan Rose-Houchins.
